Many, many New Mexicans drive around on our roads without auto insurance. These people are unable to pay for injuries they cause, and leave injured New Mexicans involved in crashes with these irresponsible drivers without any options–unless the injured person carries uninsured or underinsured motorists coverage on their own automobile insurance policy.
New Mexicans have the right to purchase uninsured and underinsured motorists coverage in the same amount as the insured’s liability coverage. In other words, if you carry $25,000.00 in liability coverage (which protects you when you cause an accident), you have the right to also carry $25,000.00 in uninsured and underinsured motorists coverage (which protects you when someone without insurance causes a collision and hurts you or your family members).
Unfortunately, many New Mexicans do not understand the purpose of their insurance coverages, and agents and adjusters do not always explain the importance of carrying uninsured and underinsured motorists coverage, since New Mexico has one of the highest numbers of uninsured drivers on our roads–driving and sometimes causing bad accidents with serious injuries. Without uninsured motorists coverage, people hurt by uninsured drivers are left high and dry.
